are designed to set standards, to hold us accountable and to really set a clear message. i think that's what we're doing. >> before i turn to officer gale, i'd like to also note that this celebrated case, this notorious case involving trayvon martin, involved a person being accused who is not a law enforcement official, per se. he was an individual citizen as part of a neighborhood watch. 49 states now, my own state being the only exception, have concealed carry law which allows individuals under some circumstances to legally carry a firearm. in this case, i don't know if mr. zimmerman complied with florida law. that will come out, i'm sure, in terms of what it took to have a concealed weapon. but it certainly raises a question that wasn't before us as much ten years ago. we are not just talking about professionalizing law enforcement and holding them accountable. we are talking about a new group of americans who are being empowered to carry deadly weapons and to make decisions on the spot about the protection of their homes and communities which i think makes this a far more complex challenge

is essential. the data we have already tells us that there's a problem. let's collect more data, and let's put in place some more remedies. your point about the supreme court and the equal protection clause, giving sufficient comfort to those who have been wronged by the police, that's simply not truth. the supreme court case lastbly in the case of wren which i can cite for you, basically allows police officers to make a pretextural stop based on race, ethnicity and national origin. it is the law of the land according to our supreme court. at times our supreme court gets it wrong, which is why which exhort this congress and this senate to step in and to enact a law when we know that there is a problem that has yet not come to the attention of our supreme court. so with all that i thank you. >> thank you. my time is up. i want to thank all of the witnesses. this has been a very, very important and useful hearing, and we have some areas of disagreement which i think we need to explore further, but i want to thank, particularly mr. gale and chief davis, for your excellent work over the years in l
